Child Rearing in America: Challenges Facing Parents with Young Children


This timely volume presents a rich picture of the lives of parents with young children in the U.S. Using the first national survey on parents with young children, a diverse group of scholars present new information about what parents do, the economic and social challenges they face, and the resources they use to improve their children's health and development. The analyses and insights provided by this book will be invaluable for policy makers as well as others involved in public health, social work, law, medicine, psychology, sociology, and child development.
